Planning For College NightReady to start planning for college?  The Parent/ Student College Information Night is primarily intended for juniors, but younger students/ families are also welcome to attend.  The meeting will be held virtually at 7:00pm on Thursday, September 29th.  

    Highlights regarding searching for colleges, exploring careers, and making college visits will be addressed. WKHS counselors will also cover the college entrance exams (SAT and ACT), how colleges evaluate applicants, what students can be doing now to prepare for applying to college and provide helpful resources to use throughout this journey.

    We strongly encourage all juniors and their parents to attend this virtual meeting! 

    The zoom link will be posted on this website the morning of the event and emailed to all junior families.  For those who may be unable to attend the presentation we will post the video of the presentation on the website.
